Easy DIY Christmas Ornaments

This weekend we started to get out the Christmas tree ornaments to decorate our tree.  In order to get the entire family involved we decided to make a few simple DIY Christmas ornaments that the kids can easily do themselves to offer as gifts and to also decorate our own tree!  With just four  materials and about 5 to 10 minutes we made some very nice and festive Christmas balls.

What you will need:
– photographs or colored paper
– scissors
– 2 metal brads (per ball)
– hole puncher

We also purchased a few clear, plastic ornaments found at Michaels Crafts (in the USA) and Rougier et Plé  (in France) and printed our photos with some glitter to make some sweet photo Christmas balls.
